|Amway's Glister Oral Hygiene and dental line|
I've always been very particular with my oral hygiene. For someone who does not have a sweet tooth, I like keeping my teeth and gums healthy. I knew how my mom spent a fortune on my braces and maintenance as a teenager. So as much as I can, I try to choose the best products for my pearly whites and other oral hygiene needs. I believe that choosing the right products help in maintaining a good oral hygiene. And since February is also the Dental Health Month, allow me to share with you one of the latest products I have tried and discovered recently.
Contrary to what others may seem to believe but dental health is actually a very important health issue especially because not everyone realizes that poor dental health is linked to something more than superficial. Research has linked poor dental health to several other diseases from migraines, respiratory infection and even some cardiovascular vascular conditions.
The message is obvious—bad dental hygiene results to bad overall health.
Glister, Amway’s brand of oral health care, gives us a few tips to maintain the “glister” of our pearly whites:
Tip 1: Follow a strict oral hygiene regimen. Brushing your teeth twice to three times a day, after every meals is recommended. Floss at least once a day to remove plaque and rinse with mouthwash right after, to kill leftover bacteria that may cause plaque. Finally, use a mouth spray in between as a refresher.
Tip 2: Invest in the right toothbrush—one that combines soft and medium bristles for a more effective brushing and one that will have enough reach to effectively clean in-between the teeth. Glister Advanced Toothbrush has a patented head design that contains more than 2600 bristles for effective plaque removal. It also has an ergonomically designed handle for easier grip when brushing.
Tip 3: Avoid over consumption of products that can stain your teeth such as soda, coffee and tea. Brush or rinse with mouthwash immediately after consuming these beverages.
Tip 4: Eat crunchy fruits and vegetables like carrots, celery and crisp apples as they act as a natural way to clean tooth enamel without causing any damage.
Tip 5: Drink water frequently as this helps remove stain-creating plaque.
Tip 6: Visit your dentist at least twice a year for preventive maintenance. Remember, prevention is always better than repair and cure!
